far better for the SOAP-specific message broker to have intimate knowledge
of the SOAP-specific payload, than to have the SOAP-specific message broker
to have intimate knowledge of the HTTP-specific request header.

also, far better for the SOAP-specific dispatching tags to be part
of the SOAP-specific payload which is supposed to be independent of the
protocol being used as a substrate for SOAP, than to have to supply this
dispatching tag in a different way for every substrate protocol.
